If you’re looking for a way to get free horse books (and I know you are, because I see my books turn up in Google searches like “Natalie Keller Reinert Free Download” ALL THE FREAKING TIME) I know a better way for you than going to some questionable site and downloading a PDF that may or may not destroy your computer’s insides.
You can get free horse books directly from Amazon, and you can do it one of two ways:
- Amazon Prime, which has lots of other benefits, or
- Kindle Unlimited, which is just for free books (I see no downside here)
All of my books are in the Kindle Select program. That means that Amazon Prime and Kindle Unlimited subscribers are eligible to download those books for free.
And unlike when you download them from ScaryFreeBooks.hackmycomputerplease.bz, no one’s computer gets eaten and the author gets paid. That’s right, we get paid. It helps us keep the lights on and make up for the fact that we have no social lives and no hobbies because all we can do is write books as fast as our fingers can type.
So you can see there’s a very nice benefit to this if you enjoy horse books, or any kind of books. The more you read, the more pennies flow into our meager accounts, and thus the more we can write. And you’re just paying a subscription fee for this access.
So not to sound like a shill (although I have an affiliate link because pennies, meager account, keeping lights on, candles are dangerous, etc.) but Amazon Prime and Kindle Unlimited have so far been very helpful to me as an author. The borrows help me afford to spend more time on writing novels and less time on freelancing. In fact, I only freelance for a select few companies now, and I spend most of my writing time on Alex and Alexander and Jules and Pete and all their horses.
Here’s how you can tell a book is a free download for members:
Very easy: it says right above the title. You can still also preview the first section of the book with the “look inside” feature, so there’s no reason to download a book you’re not already hooked on.
(By the way, maybe if we keep asking nicely, Amazon will give us an Equestrian Fiction category so our books don’t have to be in the Horse Care section. Maybe.)
As you can see, just on this one page there’s more than my books available on Kindle Unlimited, there’s also fellow Horseback Reads author Kim Ablon Whitney, who is getting rave reviews, by the way, for her Show Circuit series.
Amazon Prime offers one free download per month in addition to things like free two-day shipping, unlimited streaming with Prime Video, unlimited photo storage, ad-free music, etc. You can get a thirty-day free trial of Amazon Prime here.
Oh, and one more thing: if you like having the physical copy of a book as well, there’s a program I’m also enrolled in called Kindle Matchbook. When you purchase one of my paperbacks from Amazon only, you automatically get a free download of the Kindle edition. It’s like when you buy a record and get the MP3 download code included inside. It’s the least I can do for my readers.
Are you using Kindle Unlimited? Is the program working for you? Keep reading!
